Shapeoko 3XXL Enclosure

Just finished my enclosure finally! Thanks to this community i got the idea and some lessons learned so wanted to share and say thanks!

Please excuse the mess, was still pushing out items while building!


Yeah!! Looking great :+1:

  • enough room in the front to accomodate the dust shoe: check
  • hinged side panels for easy maintenance access: check
  • overhead lighting: check
  • tall enough to not bump your head: check
  • a fan for hot air extraction in the lower section: check
  • simple flexible mean to support the dust hose: check

Well it ticks every box in my list! great job


Thanks Jon and Julien,

I tried to hit everything even put an inlet fan and exhaust on bottom side for extraction as well as an exhaust fan in top in the back for the top section so far seems to work well and my wife is happy due to the dust is even more confined hahaha.


This list! I wish Iā€™d seen this before I started. Fortunately T-track framing is great to work with and make changes on the fly.

I love the bungee dust hose support. I thought of bungee hanging from the center, but like this one better.

  • Back opens to accomodate longer tiled jobs (Opt.)

Also appreciate the list. I have mine designed, but not built yet, so changes are easy now. :slight_smile:

@Tod1d absolutely I thought the same about centered bungee but this works better for me, also I did have the back on hinges as well for 360 degree access as well as on the bottom in the back i have another door like the front that i can access the bottom side as well as remove the shopvac if needed.
